Make sure the MOBO you select is fully PCIe 3 (2x BW of PCIe 2!) compliant in case you plan on upgrading your video card to nVidia Kepler (or AMD 7750 or above)Cheers,- jahman.

Go for the Asus P8Z68 Deluxe Gen 3 motherboard.The Asus ROG boards are a waste of money. They provide no better OC features. They only give you the ROG colored bios and motherboard that is colored red and black.The Asus P8Z68 Deluxe Gen3 will give you Ivy Bridge compatibility and it will allow for a PCIe 3 graphics card. (When released) The P8Z68 Deluxe Gen3 also has the same EFI Bios as the ROG boards. This makes OC'ing the 2700K a breeze.
